What is your knowledge about McDonald’s?

Most everyone has heard of McDonald’s, but how much do we really know?

We know it’s an American hamburger/fast-food chain, but did you know it was founded in 1940 beginning as a barbecue restaurant operated by Richard and Maurice McDonald, in San Bernardino, California?  In fact, the first McDonald’s franchise (using the famous arches logo) opened in 1953 in Phoenix, Arizona.

In 1955, a businessman by the name of Ray Kroc joined the company as a franchise agent and purchased the chain from the McDonald brothers.

  1. 4 out of 10 but really awesome facts! Crazy. I saw a documentary about the two brothers named McDonald, who created the restaurant and this other person bought the land they were renting and took their restaurant and made a huge business out of it meanwhile when the brothers created their own little business with a different name, it did not do so well and they got shut down. It was so, so sad.
